Members of the campus community, and the surrounding communities of Durham, Lee and Madbury, celebrate the beginning of the new academic year with a picnic and outdoor festivities held on the lawn of Thompson Hall.

The University Day Campus Picnic and Student Activities Fair is a great way for UNH students to find ways to participate in the university community. Student organizations will be recruiting new members and UNH departments will be promoting their services and benefits to the campus community.
